Mauricio Morales
Visual Artist / Illustrator / Designer

I am a versatile artist and designer with a very curious mind. I am based in Toronto, Canada and originally from San Salvador, El Salvador. My first experiences as an artist were sharing my love for drawing and painting with my father, Jorge Morales, a renowned Salvadoran painter and interior designer. With him, I learnt to have a deep appreciation for all art forms, especially painting, illustration and architecture.
I have a great passion for impressionism, surrealism, art deco and art nouveau, aboriginal and classic art; as well as contemporary illustration and photography. Among my influences, I can mention Antoni Gaudí, Magritte, the Group of Seven, Salvador Dalí and Tamara de Lempicka.
I studied in both San Salvador and in Ottawa, Canada where I earned my qualifications in Graphic Design and Commercial Art. It was here that I furthered expanded on my knowledge in design, illustration, painting and photography.
I work primarily in pencil, ink, watercolour, acrylics, and digital media.
